Truck is getting louder ?

I have a 2005 f-350 crew cab long bed 4x4,

only performance mods are a

zoo dad, afi intake & filter, cat & muffler delete,

has a 140,000 miles on it,

i change oil every 4000 miles with Mobil 1 fully synthetic & fuel filters same time,

always put 2 stroke (1 oz to every gallon of fuel) in my fuel,

done all this since day 1 & NEVER had a prob except injector (number 4) go out. (KNOCK ON WOOD). lol

question is now i noticed it has got ALOTT louder (the dieseling) twice as loud as it use to be.

still runs like new & gets 18 mpg.

why do u think its noiser now ?????

thanks for your two cents & time

Is it louder all the time or just before it warms up?

Do you mean the noise that comes form the hpop and the injectors? It would be odd for that to change unless you have issues. How is your egr system?
